With DataCorps, your organization will have the opportunity to work with an elite group of pro bono data scientists – including statisticians, data engineers, and computer programmers – on a multi-month project to help you cut costs, save staff time,  reach more people in need and ultimately maximize your impact.

As part of its commitment to creating a world of positive returns, Omidyar Network is financially underwriting this call for proposals and, once applications are reviewed, will host a matching challenge to inspire other funders to join in and accelerate impact at this critical time.

We are seeking visionary partner organizations that…

  • Work in an  issue area related to democratic freedom or civic engagement, such as anti-hate speech, refugees, immigration, journalism, combating fake news etc.
  • Are mission-driven – nonprofits, foundations, charities, social enterprises, and government agencies
  • Have a clear Theory of Change and understand how their activities lead to real world change
  • Have digital data, unexplored datasets or want help finding data to inform their work
  • Have leaders committed to using data to make decisions and learn hard truths, not just to report on their past work
